Tory Minister Crashes And Burns On Newsnight.

Chloe Smith, the Treasury Minister must have drawn the short straw at Govt HQ to enter into Jeremy Paxman’s news lair. As you’d might expect she was eaten alive on TV in front of thousands of viewers during an extremely uncomfortable  interview, which was akin to watching a petulant child being chastised by a furious headmaster. Paxman even asked her the question: “Do you ever think you are incompetent?”

Smith appeared on last night’s edition of Newsnight to defend Chancellor George Osborne’s U-turn on plans to increase fuel duty. Opposition parties have been very vocal and critical of the latest in an ever increasing line of budget proposal reversals. Following Smith’s appearance in front of Paxman, Osborne has been branded a ‘coward‘ for effectively feeding a junior minister to the lions and not appearing himself.
